Atlas 10KIII noise difference

Recommended Posts

I have been running 2 x 10KIII 18GBs for months now in a RAID0. From the day I got the drives, one has a very noticeable sound (the standard expected 10k whine!) while the other one is next to silent in idle.

Fitness tests pass fine and they seem to be working OK. Any comments

I have two Atlas 10K III 36GB drives that are noticeably different in noise levels also.

I'm also having issues with them so my experience may not be reliable.

Forgot to mention one sort of related thing.

I know different size drives in the same family will sound different sometimes (my 18GB 36LZX drives were much louder in higher pitch than the 36GB 36LZX drives.)

Doesn't apply to you since you said both were 18GB though.
